July 16, 1936 to May 13, 2007

With great sadness we announce the loss of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Marg (Nan) passed away suddenly after a short courageous battle, never losing her strength of character or sense of humour. Predeceased by her parents Sam and Doris Hornbrook and brother Stein. Survived by her beloved husband of 53 years and best friend Wally, children Steve (Marie) and their children Dennis (Amanda) and Marc, Shary (John) and their children Jackie (David) and Ashley (Blake), Sandy (Bernie) and their children Charlie, Michelle, Troy and Samantha, Stewart and his children Shea and Lucus, great-grandchildren Caleb and Colby; siblings Mary, Sam, Margory (Jack), Frank (Iris), Bonnie, Betty (Steve), Fred, Joy (Bill) and Alan (Judy), and many other family members, friends and neighbours. Marg loved her family unconditionally and her door was always open to everyone. She grew up in a large fishing family in Steveston, BC and married an avid fishermen. Marg had a passion for baking, cooking, smoking salmon and was an avid canner. She shared all of her yummy creations with her family, friends and neighbours. You will be greatly missed; we will think of you often for all that you were to us and all that you brought to our lives; you will forever be in our hearts. A very special thank you to the doctors and nurses at VGH. Thanks nurse Wayne for providing humour in the last few days of Marg's life.
